Isle Royale

The National Park Service (NPS) is conducting climate change scenario planning workshops around the U.S., and with GLISA's collaboration, a workshop was held in 2013 for Isle Royale National Park.  GLISA worked with NPS to develop localized...

Downscaled projections data portals

The goal of this project is to provide the users of climate projections with up to date information on the available portals of downscaled climate projections data for the United States and globally. This site provides several capabilities to the...

Agricultural Best Management Practices and Models - Assessing Vulnerability

To help protect both people and nature influenced by agriculturally-dominated watersheds in the Great Lakes region, the research, conservation, and agricultural outreach community must collaborate to understand how climate change will influence the...

Indicator Suite and Winter Adaptation Measures for the Chicago Climate Action Plan

This project was designed to help the Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant Program (IISG), GLISA and NOAA’s Midwestern Regional Climate Center (MRCC) formulate a suite of climate change indicators for local officials and their partners to assist them in...

Climate and Extreme Weather Resilience for the Region of Peel, Ontario

This project piloted a method to create access to credible, locally-relevant climate data for several communities related to Lake Ontario in the Region of Peel, one of the most populous and urbanized areas of the Canadian Great Lakes basin. The...

Climate Scenarios for Hydrological Modeling

This project is intended to inform how to incorporate climate model projections into hydrological modeling.  More broadly, this process includes how to select an appropriate data set(s) of climate projections, whether or not the projections should...

Great Lakes Snow and Climate Change

These are resources related to snow in the Great Lakes region and how snow is expected to change under climate change.

CMIP Climate Information for the Great Lakes

We are investigating the CMIP3 and CMIP5 global climate models for the information they provide about Great Lakes climate change.  Our assessment includes both an evaluation of the quality of information they provide and a description of the climate...

Arctic Oscillation: Climate Variability in Great Lakes

The Arctic Oscillation (North Atlantic Oscillation) is a dominant mode of variability in the middle and high latitudes of the northern hemisphere.  This is a project to support the development of briefing material for the National Park Service in...

Michigan Public Health and Climate Change

GLISA is working with the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) to develop a Climate Profile Report for the State of Michigan.  The Climate Profile Report is a synthesis of historical and future climate information for the state, with...

GLAA-C

In collaboration with GLISA, the goal of GLAA-C is to bring together researchers and practitioners to develop actionable climate adaptation programs for cities in the Great Lakes region. GLAA-C works with cities in the Great Lakes region to develop...

Assessing and Communicating Risks from Climate Variability for the Michigan Tart Cherry Industry

This project compiled weather and climate information to provide the cherry industry with reliable adaptation resources and strategies. The research results continue to inform industry leaders on best practices for mitigating risks and appropriating...
